Zigfrak 1.14

March 9th, 2014

Just issued a minor update to address several issues.

Changes
  • Many items and powerups which provided restorative effects to health and/or shield may now also restore armor or overshield. Armor and overshield restoration powerups may also drop while in combat.
  • Added an adjustable slider for free-roaming faction count, under Gameplay Options. 1.13 increased the number of factions and ships which can be active at once when free-roaming the galaxy; if your computer suffers in the performance department due to too many active units, try decreasing this value.
  • Tweaked volume for several sound effects.

Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with custom keybindings sometimes not getting saved.
  • Added Killdrone crafting template and associated component. Missed adding this back in when ammo was refactored.

Features:

  • Fast-paced space battles
  • Tooth-grinding enemy encounters
  • Expansive open environment
  • Fun, variable gameplay
  • Ludicrous space loot
  • Hundreds of humorous missions

As a fan of more traditional ARPG's (Torchlight + Titan Quest), I was alittle sceptical of the odd mix of space combat, but I figured for the price I'd give it a shot. I'm so glad I did.

The game is simple, yet has a certain complexity with the controls feeling great and surpisingly reponsive and fluid. Combat feels great, loot flies absolutely everywhere, and it being open world space gives you alot of freedom you don't always tend to see in most ARPG's.

The story from what I have played so far is pretty good (and humorous at times), there are also dynamic missions and random events which is nice (although fairly limited).The loot is interesting, plentiful and the crafting is also surprisingly well done and thought out.

I only have a few minor gripes. Certain things aren't explained clearly enough (like how ammo works as an item), and why armour and shields are lost permanently once destroyed (especially higher quality ones).

Other then that, well recommened for ARPG fans, and for those that want to shoot stuff and love loot to explode.

I also made a First Impressions video about the game awhile back, if you would like to know more you can find it here :- http://youtu.be/O4cHVpjsy-w

A ridiculously fun game to play, the gameplay videos don't do it justice. The scripted sequences, while not the most graphically stunning, are still amazing in their own right. The whole game has this subtle humor strewn about it which makes you motivated to actually do the quests layed out for you (there's a part that the dev intended to be serious, but really you can't take it that way). While the quests aren't really reactive and I don't recall any moral choices, some of the encounters you'll run into will make you question your character's morality. On the downside of the game, some features are really obnoxious (like the ship tractor beams, dear god), and the really slow docking (although automated). Some missions require you to dock with a ship before you obliterate the enclosed crew's only wall between them and the emptiness of space, but the cinematic nature of it makes it quite difficult while 12 of your friendlies are shooting at it.

That aside, this is an very good game and it is underpriced in my opinion. Buy it now if you haven't already.
Overall score: 94/100

Hey, engines don't make a good game.

I'm having a lot of fun dashing around in my third person cockpit killing enemy hordes and collecting their salvaged loot.

<Tons of replayabilty
<Tons of missions
<Great story
<Many planets and worlds
<Randomized loot and encounters to keep the game fresh, not minorly, but greatly impacting the game's features almost making it a roguelike.
<Lots of items, powerups, weapons, addons to your ship.
<Developers give patches and updates frequently and are kind.

The only downside to this game is that it's amazingly underrated. Great game.
